The South West of England tends to be a favourite for self catering holidays whereas beautiful areas such as Suffolk and Norfolk attract people on romantic cottage breaks. Each area of England has its own charms and attractions. Whilst on holiday remember to participate in the English pastime of drinking tea and eating cake. Wherever you go on your self catering holiday in England you will no doubt come across quaint tea shops where you can have a cream tea and take a relaxing break.

England is of course well known for elegant large country houses and English country cottages. If your budget doesnít extend to staying in a large manor house or mansion, you can nevertheless enjoy visiting one of the National Trustís or English Heritage properties on a day out. There are many quaint country cottages in England to choose from ranging from cottages for two to budget family self catering accommodation. You may even find accommodation within a national park or within an area of outstanding natural beauty. There are many options including eco friendly properties and even houseboats.

In terms of activities you can enjoy in England, these include walking, hiking, cycling and horse riding. There are usually ample opportunities for these sorts of activities in the country areas. Some also enjoy golfing and fishing. Others still enjoy shopping and general sightseeing. Do check through cottage details to find out what activities and opportunities are available nearby so you can get the best out of your self catering break. For many an important consideration is which pubs and restaurants are nearby. Owners or agencies can advise you on what attractions are near their cottage and can make recommendations about the best ones to visit to ensure you have an enjoyable cottage holiday.
